Hyundai recalls Elantra, Kona cars over risk of stalling

Fountain Valley, CA May 21, 2024 – Hyundai (OTCMKTS:HYMTF) is recalling 13,511 cars and SUVs that may stall, increasing the risk of a crash and injury, especially in high-speed traffic. 

The recall affects the following models: 

  • 2024 Hyundai Elantra
  • 2024 Hyundai Venue
  • 2024 Hyundai Kona

Recall summary

The Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) is an emission control system that returns a portion of exhaust gases back into the engine to reduce emissions and increase engine efficiency.

Due to a supplier error, the system was “contaminated” during manufacturing. This could result in a short-circuit and cause the vehicle to stall.

Recall risks

Besides being difficult to maneuver, a stalled vehicle may get hit by other cars, especially in fast-moving traffic.  

Warning signs

EGR and engine issues could trigger the malfunction indicator light (MIL) on the dashboard. 

Other Hyundai recalls

Stalling was the cause of another Hyundai recall which took place last month on the back of a U.S. government investigation, as reported.

Some of the models involved in that recall were affected by another recall due to the risk of rollaway, also as reported.

Hyundai has also been long plagued by fire-related recalls. In fact, the 2024 Hyundai Kona – which is part of the present recall – was among the cars recalled in January because of the possibility of catching fire following a crash.

The repair

Dealers will replace the EGR valve assembly free of charge. 

The notifications to the owners will be sent on June 28, 2024.
